Report: Chicago teams interested in Dexter Fowler
It's the end of January, spring training is just a few weeks away, and free agent outfielder Dexter Fowler still has yet to sign with a team.
According to Bruce Levine with CBS Chicago, however, Fowler is getting heavy interest from both of the Chicago teams:
"For various reasons — notably a slow-developing, strange free-agent outfield market — Fowler will most likely have to settle for a one- or two-year contract. As it sits, the Cubs and White Sox appear to be the two teams with the most interest in signing him to a deal."
An acquisition by the White Sox would be yet another add for them -- they've added Todd Frazier, Brett Lawrie, Alex Avila and Dioner Navarro.
The Cubs, of course, have already signed an outfielder in Jason Heyward this offseason, as well as Ben Zobrist, John Lackey and Matt Albers, just to name a few.
Fowler, 29, played 156 games last season for the Cubs, hitting .250 with 17 homers and 46 RBI.
